Orion Jr. BMS installation - Southeastern USA

Post by garolittle » Nov 07 2018 10:33pm

I need someone with experience in installing the Orion Jr. Battery Management System (BMS). So I purchased the Orion Jr. BMS for my electric go-kart that will be powered by Nissan Leaf modules. I wanted a higher grade BMS capable of the amps my go kart will use (150 amps constant and 300 amps maximum) and that is what led me to the Orion. Jr. I must admit that I may be out of my "expertise level" regarding this BMS. I don’t want to mess up this quality product so I believe I need to hire someone to do the work. I am willing to take my project (ie drive) to a knowledgeable person and pay them to help me but would need someone within a driving distance of Augusta, GA (i.e anyone in South Carolina, North Carolina, or Georgia). Will pay cash.

Sorry for the slow response. I found a guy in Florida who has installed the Orion JR. BMS so I will be working with him to get it done. I was surprised at how difficult it was to find someone who has worked with this particular BMS. I am thankful for the internet. :-)

Just in case you run into issues again, there is a similar forum to this called diyelectriccar.com, the regularly use larger power demands and the Orion seems to be the staple when hacked oem units won’t work for what ever reason. I don’t think they are as innovative as people on here who tend to obsess about every single component, from spoke thickness to the last recordable mah of each cell. Hence better technical expertise here as opposed to the same people regurgitating the same ideas. But they are dealing with 150+kw so have a lot of experience with the system you are using.
Intelligence is distributed nearly evenly, with only the occasional concentration in one person. The total quantity of Intelligence is a constant: as more people come into being, fewer and fewer get a sufficient amount for themselves.
Some say this has already reached homeopathic levels.
